My son had to carry the bale of straw through the trees and down into the creek bottom. Luckily it wasn't very heavy, just awkward to carry that far.
This morning when the school closing announcements started rolling across the bottom of the screen of the morning news, I held my breath, waiting to see if our school was closed. When it appeared, I knew I had help for the rest of the day! Farm kids don't get a day off when bad weather closes school. The cattle need extra care on those days, and extra help is always welcome!
Before we went out, I started a crockpot of soup for supper tonight. It will taste great and warm us up after a day of working outside. A few years ago, we had a huge snowstorm on Christmas Eve. The regular chores still need to be done, plus a few extras! Read about the aftermath here: Aftermath of Christmas snowstorm.
